Spring in Poca, WV, is a transitional season for HVAC maintenance. Homeowners need their heating systems less but start prepping their cooling systems for summer. One of the most effective ways to ensure you beat the heat is with spring HVAC maintenance. Below are five benefits of scheduling spring HVAC maintenance before summer.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Cleaning or replacing air filters is an important part of maintenance. Air filters trap pollen, dust, pet dander and other contaminants that affect your indoor air quality and health. It’s recommended to replace or clean your air filters every four to six weeks during peak cooling season.
An inadequately maintained system doesn’t give you the comfort that you desire. Sometimes you have colder rooms and other times you have hotter rooms. Maintenance helps your HVAC system to provide consistent temperature and humidity control to keep you comfortable.
Improved HVAC Efficiency
Without regular maintenance, the increased wear and tear, lack of lubrication and the buildup of dirt and other particulates take their toll. This decreases its efficiency, which means your system has to work harder to keep you comfortable, raising your utility bills.
Longer HVAC Life
With regular maintenance, you don’t have to worry about replacing your system before you need to as it should last between 10 to 15 years. However, without regular tuneups, that service life drops by half, which means you have to deal with a major expense sooner than normal.
Protect Your Warranty
A warranty for your HVAC system protects you in case a manufacturing fault causes a malfunction or breakdown in your HVAC system. However, it’s up to you to ensure your warranty stays valid as long as possible with routine maintenance.
Don’t risk voiding the warranty on your HVAC system. Instead, contact E.J. Thompson & Son LLC today to schedule an appointment for HVAC maintenance that brings you peace of mind.
